If the wolves do any business in this window, it has been discussed that it will be in the loan market or in a short-term deal.
Thus, a new link has taken us quite by surprise.
Which is the word?
According to De Telegraaf (Via Orange SoccerThe Wolves are one of two teams interested in signing young Ajax forward Lassina Traore.
The 19-year-old has been truly impressive in senior football this span and he also has West Brom chasing his signature.
Unfortunately, Ajax doesn’t want to lose him in January and therefore willing suitors may have to wait until January to get him out of the Netherlands.
Should wolves invest in Lassina Traore?
Traore is valued at just £ 7.2 million according to Transfer marketBut given his shape and age, you can be sure Wolves will have to pay a bigger sum of money to get him to the Premier League.
At first glance, signing another impressive young striker is probably not a good idea. However, when opportunities like this present themselves, they cannot be ignored.
Traore has proven very quickly that he is a generational talent and despite being a teenager, he is already finding the net with striking regularity in the Eredivisie.
This season, the young man has found the net in Seven times in only 11 outings. Added to that, the attacker has also registered six assists and added two more goals in other competitions.
The center forward clearly has a lot on his locker and says a lot that he already scored more goals in the top flight than Fabio Silva, someone who cost the Wolves £ 35.6m last summer.
Silva has scored only four goals at senior level and, although he is a year younger than Traore at 18, it is clear that the Burkina Faso international has more potential.
It has come out of nowhere this season and has put weight problems aside to become one of the most feared young forwards in the world. Described As someone on his “way to the top” by Marc Overmars, Traore is already held in high regard.
It would be a canny acquisition, someone who could take Silva’s place or reinvent the front line of Nuno Santo.
